Dog Show Report

Dog shows are really funny. Just when I was about to call it quits and skip out on the final day Ash gets his second major and BOW and BOS! It still feels surreal. Now we can relax about the majors and work on the rest of the points as time allows.
Digger's littermate, Galen picked up the major on Saturday- which was the only day he was entered in, so I'm sure that felt good. And one of Sharon Curry's dogs took WD on Friday. Autumn took breed all three days. For bitches Steve Porter's Unforgetable Rosey took WB on Friday and Lynhill Ebony Elegance took WB on Saturday. One of Sharon's bitches took it on Sunday ( I was still in shock over Ash's win that I didn't catch the number). We didn't enter in the sweeps as I didn't even realize that this show was a supported entry until after it had already closed. Emily Fish was the judge and I missed who she placed for best in sweeps- I think it will be on info dog soon, right? So that's about it for now.
In other words I came home last night and weighed Ash and he came in at 30 pounds!!! I started putting a half scoop of show stopper in his dinner about a week ago. I wonder if it's already bulking him up. He does have more energy than ever- which at times is too much. The guy seriously needs a hamster wheel for corgis. Anyone know where I can get one?

You guys ROCK! SO happy for you! I was watching info dog all weekend for results and just saw the firsts in class on Fri and Sat...

Guppy said...

Holy Shazam you went BOS over THREE specials too!??

Fox lady said...

Yeah, I know pinch me - right?
I LOVE that judge!
Another personal victory was that Ash placed over one of Devra Tanner's dogs (the BYB who sold me Chip and refused to take him back). I admit that felt damn good!

Guppy said...

How many pts was it, 3 or 4?

Fox lady said...

It was a 3. Ash is up to 8 points total now.

Baledwr said...

4 points! Maybe you forgot to count the specials in the dog count as you beat them?

Traci said...
